Wildlife Health Damages Due to PCBs
"In the Fox River and Green Bay, injuries to wildlife [due to PCBs] are well documented. They include cancer in walleye, deformities in terns, and fatalities to unhatched bald eagles, Forster's terns, common terns, and double-crested cormorants. These injuries have resulted in consumption advisories for every species of sport fish, and waterfowl consumption advisories for mallard ducks."
The following are abstracts of PCB research (or related research) on wildlife in the Great Lakes Region, on the Association's website. In many cases, the full text of the studies are available below the abstract. Bold Text indicates studies conducted on Green Bay, the Fox River or Lake Michigan. (Note: this is not a complete list of all research conducted on our system.)
